    Allrounder Remodeling Awards Scholarship to 2019 Simley Graduate

    Allrounder Remodeling awards scholarship

    Allrounder Remodeling owners Ruth and Eric Bader present a scholarhip to a 2019 graduate.

    Part of our Core Values is giving back to our community where we live and work. In addition, our industry is suffering from a lack of young people joining the rewarding and fun careers that we participate in each day.

    In an effort to give back to our community and bolster our own industry, we have developed a yearly scholarship for a Simley High School Graduate who plans to attend a post secondary school or apprenticeship program with the intention of learning a trade related to home building or remodeling. In order to qualify, students must maintain a B grade average, participate in community service, and provide letters of recommendation from teachers or community leaders.

    Our scholarship is administered by the hard working folks at the Inver Grove Heights BEST Foundation. They work tirelessly to find a student who meets the requirements that we set forth when developing the scholarship.

    This year, we were pleased to be able to present our scholarship to a young man who dreams of being a welder or mechanic.

    If you know a student who will be graduating in the coming years from Simley High School, please encourage him or her to apply for these scholarships.

    Allrounder Remodeling Owner visits Washington DC for Small Business Summit

    I had the opportunity to attend the 2017 U.S. Chamber of Commerce Small Business Summit in beautiful Washington D.C.   It was a great honor to be selected to attend. It was a short visit but very inspirational, not only that I was in our nation’s capital city but the wonderful speakers I heard and to visit with Senator Klobuchar, Senator Franken and Congressman Lewis.

    Standing on the roof of the US Chamber of Commerce, with the White House and Washington Monument in the background.

    One of Monday’s speakers was Marc Randolph, co-founder of Netflix.  His message was to not give up on thinking up new ideas for the next new thing might be the one that is your best idea ever. If it wasn’t for a daily drive to work for Marc Randolph and his business partner, Reed Hastings, founders Netflix, we may still be going to the video store to pick up videos. They kept thinking of new ideas each day or so to relay back to each other on the ride to a job that they once had together before Netflix. Marc spoke of not all the ideas were worth going forward with and some of them where duds.

                                                                                          Visiting the War Memorials on September 11th was a surreal experience

    On Tuesday I had the opportunity to listen to Mike Katz Sr. VP of T-Mobile. The perspective I learned from him was, listen to your customers and what they are dreaming of and try to make them come true. On this day the group I was with also was able to visit with Senator Klobuchar and Senator Franken.  It was a huge honor to be able to chat with our Senators in a small setting.

                                                                          Our group of local business leaders was honored to meet with Senator Franken

    Before our flight on Wednesday we had a short visit with Congressman Lewis. We also took the White House tour.

                                    The White House is filled with inspirational historical architecture

    Although the visits were brief, I was reminded about how important it is to write your Senators and Congressmen regarding issues that are important to you. They are working for us the best that they can.

                                                        Ok, I know it’s cheesy, but I couldn’t help myself!

    I hope to visit Washington D.C. again and do even more sightseeing.  If you ever get a chance to visit do not miss the National Mall and the War Monuments. I was very touched by all of them. It is very surreal to see and reflect on what they all mean.
